  1. I was browsing the newspaper Jewish Herald-Voice dated April 24, 1941 and came across a sports field (for baseball and football) that was located "off South Main." The field was named Lobbuck Field. I figured this was HISD's Butler Stadium located at 13755 South Main Street. The Butler Stadium wasn't built until the mid 1960s so I closed that thought. I kept reading the articles about this sports field and I guess it's apart of Hermann Park? All of the news clippings have different dates. Ranging from 1943 to 1949. The old Settegast Field is also mentioned. I'm not too sure about that one. I haven't looked into it. Does anyone know what that's about? Where was it located and who is it named after? Activities for Labor Day, with the matches to take place at Hermann Park. At 11 a.m. the softball tourney will take place at Lubbock Field. A box lunch will be held from 12 till 1:30 at Hermann Park. The softball finals and bowling finals will take pale that afternoon at their respective locations. The ping-pong tourney will be held at the T.M.C.A. From 4:30 until 6 that evening.
  2. FYI, I took the family to Hermann Park Saturday morning. What a gem this park is!! The renovations to the reflection pool and McGovern Lake are fantastic. There have also been a lot of reforestation projects undertaken that will pay dividends in a few years. We should be proud of Hermann. . . it's a great urban park. Do yourself a favor and spend a couple of hours there soon. It is a good stress reliever. . .
  3. In the wake of 16 people hospitalized from overdoses of synthetic cannabinoids known as Kush or K2, Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner has vowed to "take back our parks" by bulking up police presence there & in other "hot spots" across citywide. Turner had announced on Thursday an "aggressive plan" in creating a 50-person downtown police patrol division, the transfer of about 175 officers to patrol beats, an overtime program to add roving bike & golf-cart patrols in city parks & the hiring of 13 park rangers. "They are scaring away families & taxing our emergency medical services with their calls for help when they overdose," Turner said. "We can't have people smoking Kush & passing out just feet from where our children are playing." http://abc13.com/news/houston-mayor-takes-aim-at-citys-kush-epidemic/1407870/
  4. What do y'all think of UH architecture professor's Lotus Pavillion idea for the lake at Hermann Park? http://www.culturemap.com/newsdetail/01-12-11-can-a-lotus-flower-building-bloom-in-hermann-park/
  5. The pony rides at the stables on Almeda next to Herman Park......
  6. elnina999 has added a photo to the pool: Features the sculpture, Cancer…there is hope, by renowned sculptor Victor Salmones. Click here to view this photo at the HAIF Photo Pool on Flickr
  7. http://www.wulfe.com/realister/View_Property.asp?ID=685# " 25,000 sf of new retail space available. Mixed-use project with 800 residential units in two towers. "
  8. I don't know about you guys but I find it a bit outrageous that they are even thinking about doing this, even if the route would follow the N. MacGregor right of way. IMO, The recent improvements made to Brays Bayou would be a waste if this project becomes reality. Fortunately, there appears to be a lot of opposition to it. http://abclocal.go.c...ocal&id=8703131
  9. Does anyone by chance know where the locomotives, and cars came from? My dad and I were recently talking about this, after hearing that the train had been closed for repair/remodeling. The topic of the origin of these trains, came up when he mentioned that they were probably going to finaly replace these, since they had been around since the time of Playland park. He said that when Playland Park closed down the trains were moved here, but thought there was already a train here at the time. The Playland train's were just added to the "fleet", but as far as he knew were still in use now. Are these the same train's, and was Playland park thier original home? I know they're old as the dirt on the dirt, but I'd never heard that. The second part of this post, I'm going to be taking the kids over to the park and zoo etc. next weekend when we have them in town, and I'm seriously wondering now what they've done?!? Did they change out the old train's for new one's? I sure hope not! I do see from the Hermann Park website though, that they have changed the station from it's old home to some type of temporary structure. The website has a lot of 404's on it. What's going on? Regards, Rhino BTW - What happened to the old (Big) locomotive?
  10. Or is there some kind of legality preventing that from ever happening? TMC's expanding at a break neck pace and running out of room. Peering into the future, if it continues to expand as such, I wonder what the landscape will look like in another 20 years.
  11. I came across a couple of photos title "Hermann Park Reservior" while on a photo hunt. Has anyone heard of it and have any more info? Here is a link to the page. http://www.houstonarchitecture.com/Building/2779/Hermann_Park_Reservoir.php
  12. I had NO idea they were stolen! The Parks department estimates $100,000+ for replacing the 264 bulbs and bronze canisters http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/metrop...an/4794939.html
  13. Have any of you heard about the locomotive being moved to Minute Maid Park? If so, where did they put it?
  14. New plans for Hermann Park train A park renovation deal recently approved by Houston City Council has set the stage for an interesting first. Generations of Houstonians have taken the train for recreational rides through Hermann Park. Passengers riding on the Metro Rail line will eventually be able to walk over to another track and basically transfer between trains. It
